At ASPACE, they toured the different spaces of the centre and spent some time with the carers and users. In the kitchen of the centre, they learnt about the food texturing project, which Aspace Navarra is developing, a technique for adapting food that transforms its consistency making it adequate and safe for its consumption, considering the difficulties faced by the people with intellectual disabilities in food.

Before leaving, King and Queen held a brief meeting with the administrative staff of the ASPACE learning about the daily life of Aspace in the Foral Community.
In addition to the Ramón y Cajal centre and the Virgen de Orreaga school, Aspace has a special employment centre, a sports club, an occupational centre with headquarters in Pamplona / Iruña and Bera, and two other assistance resources in these same localities, in addition to a reception, orientation and rehabilitation service that serves more than 380 people. Aspace currently has 325 partners, 526 workers and a hundred volunteers.
Next, King Felipe and Queen Letizia headed towards the das-Nano technology company in Tajonar, specialized in artificial intelligence. They heard about the different business lines developed by the company.
There, they have had the opportunity to see first-hand the usefulness of a biometric identification system developed by the company itself. This biometric identification tool is one of the projects developed by this Navarrese technology company, which emerged in 2012. It currently employs more than one hundred people.
A joint-venture created together with BBVA, with the aim of developing digital identity verification software that combines facial biometrics, voice and ID verification, the software will be an interesting application in the financial sector, mobility, telecommunications and even the prevention of gambling among minors.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia participated in several live demonstrations of the application of these technologies applied to access control not only to companies but also to means of transport and even cultural events, all in a way that respects the privacy and data of the user.
